No Mic Open Mic
Shot In The Dark Cafe & Nostrovia! combined efforts to kick off a one shot No Mic Open Mic, a free open mic in downtown Tucson, Arizona.
Shot In The Dark is located at 121 E. Broadway Blvd. This cafe is Pat Benatar with some pickle juice, meets Barrack Obama..... in space... with water guns? Maybe some hummus and pita.
This open mic is community oriented. We work to create an intimate and comfortable environment. There is no stage. There is no microphone. Let's hear your diaphragm. Poets + rappers + musicians are welcome to bring their voices. Speak loud. Then speak louder.
